A plasma solenoid driven by an Orbital Angular Momentum laser beam

Preprint English OPEN
Nuter, R.; Korneev, Ph.; Thiele, I.; Tikhonchuk, V.;

A tens of Tesla quasi-static axial magnetic field can be produced in the interaction of a short intense laser beam carrying an Orbital Angular Momentum with an underdense plasma. Three-dimensional "Particle In Cell" simulations and analytical model demonstrate that orbi... View more
